Linear determinantal equations for all projective schemes

Jessica Sidman and Gregory G. Smith

Vol. 5 (2011), No. 8, 1041–1061
Abstract

We prove that every projective embedding of a connected scheme determined by the complete linear series of a sufficiently ample line bundle is defined by the 2 × 2 minors of a 1-generic matrix of linear forms. Extending the work of Eisenbud, Koh and Stillman for integral curves, we also provide effective descriptions for such determinantally presented ample line bundles on products of projective spaces, Gorenstein toric varieties, and smooth varieties.
